Picture it. You’re on a Zoom call, there are 8 other people in the meeting, you’ve got multiple tabs open, including Slack and your email, and just as you finish reading the Slack message that just popped up, someone on the call asks you for your opinion. What do you say? You have no idea what they want your opinion on because you were distracted.
We’ve all been there, which is why we’ve put together this list of responses for when you need to say something but you have no idea what was just said or asked.
Just remember, above all, the key is confidence. If you say any of the aforementioned lines (or one you came up with yourself!) confidently, people will buy it. So keep checking slack, reading the news, and online shopping during your team meetings. You got this!
